Thanks for the "Betty Blogger" opportunity. I think the most important thing I learned through this experience was the magnitude of applications the Internet possesses even though I realize I have only sampled a small portion. I found personal frustration with navigating through some of these sites the most challenging, including frequently having difficulty trying to view my blog. I felt the "self-directed" learning model fairly successful, although I think I will always be a fan of sitting in a room with an instructor available to assist you if you encounter a problem. I realize there were drop in times available for such assistance but I never took advantage of it. All in all I think the "Betty Blogger" experience fulfilled my expectations and if the program ran again I would definitely recommend it to a friend.

I thought Library thing was clever. It was neat to create a virtual book shelf with books that I have read with all the information I would ever need at my finger tips. I think I will use this application again.


I subscribed to Disney kids. I discovered Google Reader is pretty eay to use although I don't forsee using it often.

Photo Sharing

The "tags" that were assigned to the photo I sent were "Jamaica".
and "Dolphins". Picasa appears to be an interesting sight and when I have more time available I will definitely try creating some of my own albums.

Social Networking

Before I actually set up a Facebook account, I teased my husband about how much time he used to spend on Facebook. I'm happy to report that some of the novelty has worn off. I do find some of the features a little ridiculous, for example why would you want your Friends to know every time you write on your wall or make a comment? I was relieved when I discover how I could change many of these settings including levels of privacy. I put a lot of limits on access to my info because I dop have some privacy concerns with social networking. i will continue to use Facebook but in a limited capacity.

Yes We Can

Yes We Can!!


President-Elect Barak Obama on Election Night

I loved my YouTube experience! I only wish there wqs more time in the day. I can see how it can become addictive.

I think streaming has become so popular because it allows you to see and share so many things with a few simple touches of your finger tips.

Youtube definitely has a fan with me.

The reason I decided to participate in BETTY BLOGGER summer school is because I know electronic communication is evolving so rapidly, and unless I make a commitment to learn some of the new formats out there I will be left behind. Betty gives me an opportunity to make a commitment and at the same time the flexibility to learn about these new forms of communication.
